My Daughters

For those of you who have been faithfully reading my blog for a while now, please excuse my lack of recent posts, and the interruption of regularly scheduled programming. . .
And thanks for stopping by!

I would like to introduce you to the newest member of my family :)

Avery Lea arrived on May 28th, 2008 at 0755 hrs.

Weighing in at a healthy 8.1 lbs and measuring 20.5 in. long, she is the picture of blotchy new baby health. As my husband always says, new babies look like gremlins. . .
But what a cute little gremlin she is!

Big sister can not get enough of holding the baby. She would hold her all day if she could.

She does a lot of this yawning. And sleeping.

Too bad it is only for about 2 hours at a time. . .

Here she shows off her "Spinner Scowl". My husband's contribution to her genetics.

All in all, things are going really well. The only real snafu was when I realized my child was constantly hungry because I wasn't "producing" to the required amount. . .*yikes*

So, now she gets a little milk from me, and a little from a can, and she is happy as she can be!

The unfortunate side effect of babies dropping a full pound in the first week is that she is now making up for lost time and eating constantly. But hey--what new mom actually gets to sleep, right? Thank heavens for my husband who has been right there up with me all night.

He is the best :)

Don't tell him I said that, it'll be our secret. . .

Btw, I am going to wait a bit longer until things settle down. . .then my blog posts should be fairly regular again. . . If you are not currently a subscriber (and you actually made it to the end of this post--hey thanks :) you may want to consider plugging in your email (look to the left sidebar).

That way you will be notified when projects are posted--which the next post will be.
